APPOINTMENTS & VISITOR POLICIES

Visitor policy updates

To protect our patients, staff, and community, we have implemented further restrictions on visitation in our hospital, emergency department and outpatient clinics.

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, we are restricting visitors for inpatients as well as outpatient procedures, until further notice.

To ensure everyone’s safety, NO VISITORS WILL BE ALLOWED except for the following:

  • End-of-life patient visits will be will be managed at the discretion of the Chief Nursing Officer
  • One parent if patient is a minor seen in ED or during an outpatient appointment
  • One parent or guardian for pediatric patients
  • One birth partner for patients in labor
  • One person for persons requiring physical and or mental assistance

All visitors may be screened before entering the facility to ensure they do not have a temperature of 100° or above, or any other symptoms of cough or illness. We recommend using phone calls, FaceTime, or Skype, to connect with loved ones. People with chronic disease or who are over 65 are discouraged from visiting the hospital. Hospitals around the County are implementing similar restrictions as we all work to control the spread of COVID-19.

SELF CARE

A friendly reminder: don’t delay healthcare. Please do not put off seeing your provider for medical needs. Even if you are staying home and do not have COVID-19 symptoms, don’t neglect any other medical issues you may have.

  • We are here and ready to serve you. We are doing all we can to support our patients during COVID-19. We have instituted additional procedures in our daily practices, clinics and at the hospital to ensure the safety of patients and their families.
  • Things are changing daily and we appreciate your patience as we make the necessary changes in order to keep you, your family and our community safe from contracting infection.
  • We have put strategies in place, including implementing policies to separate sick and well visits to allow more time for sanitizing public areas above. Our teams have protective equipment on hand and are specially trained to offer safe, effective care, with all Coronavirus precautions in place.
  • It is still VERY IMPORTANT to bring your child under the age of two in for well child visits. Vaccinations they receive at these visits are important for protecting them against serious illnesses. Call your primary care provider or your pediatrician with questions.
  • We are dedicated to the health and well-being of you and your family. In person and virtual office visits for primary care and specialty care are available. Please call your referred clinic to schedule a visit. They will determine which type of visit is most appropriate.
